Fully formed hanging low

Swallowed up by the glow 

Overcome by the pull it possessed 

He felt changes inside 

Soon unable to hide 

As the moon did it's worse at it's best

An unquenchable thirst 

Heart a beat from being burst 

Mass assault on his senses and frame

Rolling eyes find a hold 

Turning yellowy gold 

As the beast stakes his ownership claim 

Hunger pangs bring a chill 

As he feasts on a kill

In the bone yard his temporary lair

Saturated in blood 

Husky coat caked in mud

The result of his predatory flair 

All alone with dead deer 

Something pricks up his ear 

It's a howl and he haunches his back 

Running wild in the night 

A spectacular sight 

Makes his way to the rest of the pack

    OH MY GOD! I love this one!! I thought I was the only one who saw or even noticed the full moon!!! This is so descriptive and vivid! I found myself hunting with the pack! Pisces โ™“๏ธ Full moon!! That's why all the love and lust poems. Emotions all over the place! All the poets are in their feelings! ๐Ÿ˜†

      Not the only one LIZ
      Couldn't help but admire it
      I don't know what defines a "super moon " as this one is classified
      It did seem so much brighter last night
      Glad this struck a chord with you
      Nothing wrong with scattered emotions
      We'd be a bit robotic otherwise
      Thank you very much for such encouragement
      It's priceless

        Yes! It was so beautiful! I actually took a picture but it doesn't do it justice! Supermoon just means the orbit around Earth is oval shape instead of circular. It's rare. You're right, scattered emotions can be a great thing, especially when releasing! As you can tell, I love the ๐ŸŒ™ ๐ŸŒš ๐ŸŒ” ๐ŸŒ• ๐ŸŒ– ๐ŸŒ›

        Lol I took a couple of pics also
        Not great results
        Thanks for the education re super moon
        Totally agree
        If not released they are caged

      • Introverted Sage

        Vivid imagery! The magic of the Moon and how it evokes dormant remnants of our Soul or our deepest desires.. Letting our inner out to play has its benefits!
        Great write!

          All work no play makes Jack a dull boy

          Thank you sage
          Always grateful

          The supermoon in this poem and the description makes me think of a werewolf. Beautiful imagery throughout. Love this poem!!

            Well spotted
            It's all about being turned by the moon's power
            "The beast stakes his ownership claim:
            Of the man's body
            Thank you for seeing what I'm trying to say Christina
            Extremely grateful

            I thought thisโ€ฆ
            All alone with conquered prey
            He howls and his haunches swayโ€ฆ

            Dead deer , hmmmm

            • peto

              Great lines Bobby
              Would definitely have enhanced this write
              It is what it is
              Doubt you will ever get perfection from this pen
              Truly appreciate your honesty
              Many thanks

                Nuance gets lost in tiny comments, I was so liking the piece I wanted to jump in, in retrospect it was an overstep. Your graceful demeanor shines through with that kind response.

                  We have always been fascinated by the myth of the wolf howling at the full moon, unable to resist its pull. Your poem, full of mystery and intrigue, paints a graphic and eerie picture with wonderful imagery. Great write!
